Glendale Public School Rain Garden

Posted by | 0 Comments

In 2019 construction of a 965 m2 rain garden on the grounds of Glendale Public School within the Fletcher’s Creek Sustainable Neighborhood Action Plan area in Brampton took place.  In approximately two months a previously unused baseball field was turned into a rain garden that can capture and infiltrate 200 m3 of runoff per rain event, addressing an existing drainage problem on the school property.

During construction, an innovative approach was applied to re-use site soils.  Soils from the site were amended on site to make the growing media used in the rain garden / bioretention area, which eliminated the need to haul it offsite and bring in a pre-made growing media.
